As a mom where do I spend most of my time? In the kitchen! I even moved the laptop into the kitchen because I'm always there, whether it be cooking, cleaning, or whatever, I'm always in the kitchen. We live in a brand new house but I didn't get to design my kitchen so it's just the basics. However, we did get to upgrade to stainless steel appliances and I love them. Here's my kitchen now:
If I could make it over I would love to add a nook or desk somewhere for a makeshift computer/office space. I would also love to change the counter tops to granite over the laminate ones we have now. The appliances are great but the cabinets all need hardware to match. The other thing I would love to do is add some organizational tools. Maybe some organizing items for inside the cabinets, they are just basic inside, and some type of shelving for the walls. And if I want to go really big I would love to change the tile on the floor and paint the walls (we still have up the yucky contractor paint)! So it wouldn't be much but I think it would make it look totally different!
